‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

How a perfect day turned into a nightmare for the fly. It had all started off so well, the big day had arrived, it was a beautiful morning and the fly was going swimming. He had everything he needed – a bag, some sunscreen, a towel and a ball. The water was not too hot, not too cold; in fact, it was just the way he liked it. What could possibly go wrong? The fly was certainly in for a very big surprise.
This is a quirky picture book by the Argentinean writer and illustrator Gusti. It’s an amusing tale that will have children giggling at the fly’s misfortune. The simple, child-like illustrations will appeal to children too – a mixture of painted cut-out images presented in a collage style. The illustrations are very funny and who would have thought that a fly could become so endearing?
